AIBU I bought tickets for beys upcoming world tour at a local stadium. I decided I needed the money more than needed the concert so offered to sell my ticket!! So a friend of a friend said she'd buy it!! However no money has crossed hands so far I then decided to keep said ticket so txt my so called "best" friend so say I was going to go after all.. However the response I got was one of ohh my friend thinks she's going she's really looking forward to it! (Not oh great pleased u can still come)!!
So I said well if she's got the money she can have it.. So I was told she would get it to me today.. Got my head bit off when I asked for it via PayPal.. However there are still tickets left for the concert £37 dearer than the ticket Iv already bought for myself!! What should I do?? I feel very pissed off by said "best friend".. Opinions please Tia

Has your friend got the ticket? If not i wouldnt give until she has paid.
If she has then all you can really do is keep bugging her but money always ruins friendships, i will never lend anyone more than £20 and you will need it for something like gas/elec/food

If your friend was going to have to be the one to tell her other friend that she couldn't have the ticket after all then I can understand why her immediate response was 'oh, but X is looking forward to it'.

If you have changed your mind, you have changed your mind. Go to the concert if you want.

I understand why you feel pissed off about your friend's reaction but maybe she wasn't coming from the position of not caring about you but feeling a bit awkward about telling the other friend?

No the tickets haven't came yet.. Thing is I'm on maternity leave too my jobs not brilliant paid and neither is my hubbys. Her and her partner are on over 35k each. I even txt her to say there were still Beyoncé tickets left online and Iv been totally ignored!! Tbh she made me wait 3 weeks after buying Adele tickets on my hubbys cc last year when I'd just had my baby!! We've been friends for 15 years but I'm sick of her pettiness tbh I feel like just telling her to duck off 😱

maybe if she is otherwise a good friend you just need to 'manage' her so that situations like this don't come up or are minimised - e.g. next concert put the ball firmly in her court to order/pay for the tics first!!!

But if she had gave me the money straight up when she said she wanted it then fair enough it was weeks ago and no offer of the money was made!! If there's tickets left why can't get mate but £87 ticket?? Why should I gave to shell out the extra when Iv already got a ticket??.. It's the fact she bit my head off when I asked for it via PayPal! Grrr it's got me so wound up!! She never texts to arrange mate dates I'm always the one having to do that etc she was godmother to my first born and never bothers visiting either.. I feel like I'm flogging a dead horse.angry

Don't under any circumstances give away your cheaper ticket and buy a more expensive one so her other friend can go. That's just silly!

Tell her you did think she wasn't interested when she didn't buy the ticket off you.

Give her a deadline, let's say Wednesday. If by then no money, she gets no ticket. In all fairness you promised her those tickets so it's not like she just demands them off you for no reason. She needs to pay up though.

out of principal that's what I want to do but I really don't think I want to go with my so called bf now.. I should just give her a refund and tell her to get another ticket to lol.. Hubby says to just let her mate have the ticket and wait until nearer the day there's bound to be some cheaper ones hmm
